Our clients returned from their trip and their feedback was very good.

Customers have made a number of compliments, from staff, organization, to services. They admitted that organizing this itinerary was not easy and so can only be thankful that you were able to do so.

They loved the ferry route, and say it is a good alternative to the number of flights they had on this itinerary. Thank you for your patience and collaboration on this trip.

Would give Kusan 10 stars if we could. She booked an amazing trip for my family of 5 with small children. She listened to our interests, stayed within budget, allotted perfect timing for travels, and was available by phone if any questions arose. Was so responsive, and always listened to questions or concerns as they came up. Even helped with special bookings and transfers. We focused mainly on eastern coast Australia, Brisbane to Great Barrier Reef, then down to Sydney. Thank you for an amazing trip Kusan!

Kusan was amazing to work with!! We are so grateful to have connected with Kusan and also her New Zealand counterpart, Claudio! They planned our entire 3-week honeymoon in Australia and New Zealand! With constant communication back and forth, Kusan really gave us the expertise of the region and gave us amazing recommendations. She worked with us immensely and was so patient through all my neverending questions. The itinerary we landed on was the most spectacular trip, and we truly could not have had a smoother, more fun honeymoon! We are so grateful for Kusan and her team for everything. Throughout our honeymoon, drivers and cars and tours picked us up on time, smooth airport experiences, rental cars, tours, nice hotels, everything was perfect and ready for us – and we just had to show up! Trip Highlights: Australia Zoo, Reef House in Cairns, Great Barrier Reef, Waitomo Caves, Maori culture in Rotorua, and Wanaka. Thank you for everything, Kusan! We appreciate you so incredibly much.
